Leston Paul's productive season debut has landed him a spot on the Big East's weekly honor roll.

The senior midfielder posted two assists in the No. 5 USF men's soccer team's 2-1 victory over Michigan on Friday that was broadcast nationally on Fox Soccer Channel.

Paul and Mario Mesen set Brenton Griffiths up for the tying goal in the 64th minute. Paul got another assist less than a minute later when his penalty kick rocketed off Michigan keeper Adam Grinwis, which set Ben Sweat up for the go-ahead score.

The Bulls are back in action this weekend at the Hurricane Classic in Tulsa, Okla. USF faces SMU on Friday at 4 p.m. and finishes the quick road trip off with a game against Tulsa on Sunday at 8 p.m.

The Bulls' next home games are Thursday, Sept. 6 against South Carolina and Saturday, Sept. 8 against Iona. The contests are part of the USF Tournament at Corbett Soccer Stadium.
